Jakarta, IO – The Confederation of Indonesian Trade Unions (KSPI) rejected the ratification of Government Regulation in Lieu of Law 2/2022 on Job Creation by the Parliament.
It even issued a threat to launch national strike by its 5 million members. They view the law as going against the interests of workers, reported Okezone, Wednesday (22/3).
“We will stop production for 5 days,” declared KSPI chairman Said Iqbal.
Iqbal also said that protests attended by thousands of workers will be held every Tuesday outside the parliament compound. He said KSPI will collect 1 million signatures from its members to show their rejections of the law.
“We will submit the petition to the President and the House leadership,” said Said Iqbal.
The House officially passed the law on Tuesday (21/3). Two political parties — PKS and the Democratic Party — expressed their rejection by walking out of the chamber. (un)
